Submission + - Israel Gelfand Dies at 96 (

tehgnome writes: Arguably the greatest mathematician of the 20th century has passed at the age of 96. The wake of Gelfand's work has influenced every modern branch of mathematics from Representation theory and Fourier analysis, to Algebraic Geometry. He will be remembered for his extreme influence on the world of mathematics and his legendary Gelfand seminar.
